Sample text

Virtually any small business you can think of sells products for which co-op ad funds are available. If you’re a store owner, look around your store, and you may be able to identify products from big-name manufacturers who, in all likelihood, have co-op or vendor dollars set aside to aid you in selling these items. Many small businesses either don’t know co-op money is available, or they find the thought of collecting the funds too daunting. For this reason, a lot of available cash is left on the table because small businesses often think they have better things to do than fill out forms and adhere to certain rules in order to collect a few extra bucks to throw at advertising.

If you’re selling a female-oriented product, you don’t want to waste too much of your ad budget advertising to men, and vice versa. Sure, you’ll get some spillover, and you can’t do anything about that. But targeting your media buys as narrowly as possible saves you money in a big way. Maximizing Your Budget You need to spend enough money on advertising to make an impact in the marketplace. You need to make some noise — be heard above the din of other advertising messages. But you don’t want to spend more on advertising than you can comfortably afford.

Why should you want to know what your competition is spending? Because this information gives you some basis for planning your own budget. Forewarned is forearmed, which in this case means that gathering information about the other guys helps you make a quantified judgment as to how much you need to spend in order to compete with them. If you own a momand-pop hardware store, you may have a tough time generating a budget that can compete with the monster-size warehouse stores — but don’t panic. Simply outspending the other guy (or even trying to keep up with him) isn’t the whole answer.
